Q: ‎[therein lies the rub] ne anlama geliyor?
A: It means you have found the source of a problem, but also are unhappy or frustrated by it. I believe the phrase comes from riding horses. If you saddle a horse you first put a folded blanket down. Imagine there is a pebble in the blanket that rubs on the horse and causes it to misbehave. When you finally find the pebble that was making the horse uncomfortable. "There in lies the rub!" would be a accurate exclamation, similar to. "Finally I found it!" But it also created a problem with riding the horse. Hence the frustrated meaning of the phrase in common usage.
