Hi mleech, thanks for your help.
I have done the post-installation task by using the command :sudo ./usrp_burn_mb_eeprom --args=addr= --key=gpsdo --val=internal
The terminal return:

Creating USRP device from address: addr=
-- Opening a USRP2/N-Series device...
-- Current recv frame size: 1472 bytes
-- Current send frame size: 1472 bytes

Fetching current settings from EEPROM...
    EEPROM ["gpsdo"] is "internal"

Setting EEPROM ["gpsdo"] to "internal"...
Power-cycle the USRP device for the changes to take effect.

I think the congfiure is successful.
Then I use the GPS function of my phone, It works. I think the signal of GPS satellite is also available.
But the lookuperror  still exists. Why was that? Dose gpsdo can't be used in China?

I have bought two gpsdos and install them to my usrp n210. Then I congfiured them step by step according to the following link provided by ettus LLC http://files.ettus.com/uhd_docs/manual/html/gpsdo.html.
After all the things had done, I tried to retrieve the current GPS time by the "gps_time" sensor using the codes : " usrp->get_mboard_sensor("gps_time") ". The
compilation is ok and I executived the program. Then an unexpected LookupError occured :

Error: LookupError: Path not found in tree: /mboards/0/sensors/gps_time

I printed all sensor list and there are only two sensor "mimo_locked", "ref_locked". So I thought that means The gpsdo was not properly set so that the usrp didn't find any "gps_time" sensors. But when I executived the program "test_pps_input" at /usr/local/share/uhd/example. The pps seens all right. That means the gpsdo is ok. What's more, when I  used the reference sources provided by an external GPSDO by the code : 
It work well too.
Now I am confused . why is that happen? Was my gpsdo broken? All the two gpsdos have the same LookupError.
Thanks for your help.
Did you do the post-installation task:
Also, the "gps_time" is only available once the GPSDO is locked to a GPS satellite constellation--that's where it gets the time from (and the phase reference!).
