For that kind of troubleshooting, the first program to try is
uhd_usrp_probe. It locates the hardware, loads the fpga firmware and
reports the radio's capabilities.
A rookie mistake that I made myself is updating gnuradio and uhd without
getting the latest firmware. It caused all kinds of crazy behaviour.
Reading the output of that program will tell you what command to execute to
automatically download and install the latest firmware.
