I don't know thisreader. Is this from Broadcom?

This error message is kind of "general error". It usually has nothing to
do with transactions. Adding "debug 2048" to scdaemon.conf will log all
I/O with the reader.

You may also try running without pcscd and thus use scdaemon's internal
ccid reader.  Make sure that you have write permissions to the USB
