Transaction rejected in Uniswap before even reaching my contract

I am developing my own contract and I am having the following issue:

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    development: {
      provider: () => new HDWalletProvider(mnemonic, ``),
      host: "",     // Localhost (default: none)
      port: 8545,            // Standard BSC port (default: none)
      network_id: "*",       // Any network (default: none)
      skipDryRun: true     // Skip dry run before migrations? (default: false for public nets )

and my code contains the following logic:

    receive() external payable {}
    function _transfer(
        address sender,
        address recipient,
        uint256 amount
    ) internal virtual override{
        if (ready_to_market && !inSwapAndLiquify) {
            amount = swapAndLiquify(amount, buy);

        if (!ready_to_market)  {
            // First transaction is the creation of the liquidity
            // So I assume that the recipient is going to be the liquidity wallet
            liquidity_wallet = address(recipient);
            ready_to_market = true;

        super._transfer(sender, recipient, amount);

    function swapAndLiquify(uint256 amount, bool buy) private lockTheSwap returns (uint256) {
        uint256 prize_rate = getTaxRates(buy);

        uint256 prize = _calculatePercentage(amount, prize_rate);
        // Take those tokens I want to keep
        amount = amount.sub(prize);
        return amount;

    function SendToPrizePool(uint256 tokens) private {
        uint256 initialBalance = address(this).balance;
        // Swap tokens and keep the result in the contract
        // how much BNB did we just swap into?
        uint256 newBalance = address(this).balance.sub(initialBalance);

    function _make_swap(uint256 amount) private{
        address[] memory path = new address[](2);
        path[0] = address(this);
        path[1] = pancakeswap_router.WETH();
        _approve(address(this), address(pancakeswap_router), amount); 
            0, // accept any amount of ETH
Stack trace:
    "code": -32603,
    "message": "Internal JSON-RPC error.",
    "data": {
        "message": "VM Exception while processing transaction: revert UniswapV2: TRANSFER_FAILED",
        "code": -32000,
        "data": {
            "stack": "c: VM Exception while processing transaction: revert UniswapV2: TRANSFER_FAILED\n    at Function.c.fromResults (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ganache-cli/build/ganache-core.node.cli.js:4:192416)\n    at e.exports (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ganache-cli/build/ganache-core.node.cli.js:55:2089395)",
            "name": "c"

So the logic behind this is:

  1. Uniswap swaps the tokens
  2. I calculate the tax I want to retain
  3. I want to exchange back those tokens I retained in step 2 to BNB
  4. I want to get those bnb and send them to the prize wallet

I can't even test this because uniswap and pancakeswap are not even allowing me to invoke the method, I am getting an error -3200.
If I comment the code with the logic to swap back it works.

Any clue why I am not able to swap again my tokens?
Also, I noticed that address(this).balance is always 0, am I missing something here?
Are there better ways to do this logic I want to do?

Update: I tried in Rinkeby, binance testnet and with ganache with the following config:
ganache-cli --fork --chain-id 4

Error persists

Thank you
