The foundations problem in mathematics was the late 19thcentury and early 20th century term for the search for the simplest metamathematics.
Today one refers more ambiguously to the foundations of mathematics to avoid giving the impression that there is a 'problem' that can besolved in the sense of a science or mathematics problem, with a single right answer that is checked by means describable in proof theory.

Thomists and Thomas Aquinas on the foundation of mathematics.
The term "foundations of mathematics" is sometimes used for certain fields of mathematics itself, namely for mathematical logic, axiomatic set theory, proof theory, model theory, and recursion theory.
Some theories tend to focus on mathematical practice, and aim to describe and analyze the actual working of mathematicians as a social group.

After several schools of the philosophy of mathematics met limitations one after the other in the 20th century, the assumption that any foundation could be successfully modelled within mathematics itself began to be heavily challenged.
Today one refers more ambiguously to the foundations of mathematics to avoid giving the impression that there is a 'problem' that can be solved in the sense of a science or mathematics problem, with a single right answer that is checked by means describable in proof theory.
The term 'foundations problem' only occurs in literature that makes the assumption that there is such a provable and single foundation.

Turing showed that the machine in principle was able to do all mathematical operations and that there was no general way to determine if a computation would ever stop.
From this he concluded that it is not possible to determine if a theorem is provable or not without actually finding the proof.
You can also informally appreciate the halting problem by considering the consequences of having a subroutine, e.g.
