Lens Blur is a destructive filter so it cannot work on a Smart object as the others do. In this case you have to rasterize your layer or, if it was just an image layer anyway, don't make it a smart object.

Just expanding on what @roaringmousegraphics has already nicely explained. In this situation I duplicate the Smart Object and hide the visibility of the original. I then rasterize the duplicate and apply the filter. If I need to adjust the blur I'll throw away the layer and repeat the process with different settings.

Instead of rasterizing duplicated SO layer one can edit it and apply destructive filter in case editor wants to build on top using available non destructive filters.
