This is the context:

The big issue in philosophy of physics has been the problem of understanding and interpreting what quantum mechanics is really about.

-Barry Loewer

What is the meaning of the bold part? I didn't find a proper meaning for this phrase that makes sense with this context. Does it mean "the problem of understanding and interpreting the essence/nature of quantum mechanics"? or what?

What quantum mechanics is really about just means what quantum mechanics actually is, i.e. the definition, what it means etc.

So then we have:

The big issue in philosophy of physics has been the problem of understanding and interpreting what quantum mechanics actually is.
