I recommend a source install using build-gnuradio:

wget http://www.sbrac.org/files/build-gnuradio

chmod  755 ./build-gnuradio

./build-gnuradio -v

But you should also, for the sake of balance, look into PyBombs, and the 
Installing Gnu Radio from source pages here:


The problem is that for the more conservative distros, like Ubuntu, it's 
very likely that whatever they package will be out-of-date. Since
   the B200mini is quite new relative to the release of Ubuntu 14.04, 
there won't be any support, and what is there will be older, so
   missing features and bug-fixes.
