Message: [WARNING] Can't find label in args

An error message like this one:

Probe device driver=sdrplay
[WARNING] Can't find label in args
Error probing device: Can't find label in args

could be due to the OS not being able to 'see' the RSP as a USB device.

You may want to check using the command lsusb:

lsusb -d 1df7:

The output should look similar to this:

Bus 002 Device 006: ID 1df7:3010

If the lsusb command above returns nothing, it means the OS is not able to see the RSP (which could be due to a moltitude of reasons, like problems with the OS, bad USB cable, bad hardware, etc).

Another way to verify that the OS is able to see the RSP device is by running the dmesg command

dmesg

and look for lines similar to these (the idVendor value should be 1df7):

[ 1368.128506] usb 2-2: new high-speed USB device number 6 using xhci_hcd
[ 1368.255007] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=1df7, idProduct=3010, bcdDevice= 2.00
[ 1368.255016] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0

If there's nothing like that, try first to disconnect the RSP and then connect it back; if that does not work, try rebooting the computer; if that does not work either, try the RSP on a different computer with a different USB cable.
