You should get a recent version.  Even Fedora comes with 2.4.0

GnuPG 2.3 and later supports several readers and thus the reader-port
option of scdaemon is not really useful anymore.  Please have a look at
gpg-card [1], this new tool will eventually replace gpg --card-edit but
it is different because it supports all kind of cards.  There is even a
yubikey control command.  It depends on what you actually want to do.
