I have a confusion about installing Debian on this NAS device. I'd like to do

My question is: will updating the firmware also remove the stock web interface
and functionality?

The end result I'm trying to achieve is a NAS functioning as normal but also
with Debian so I can add further functions such as Apache.

I'm not familiar with that particular device, but almost certainly the answer to your question is yes, if you run Debian on it then you won't also be running the original software.

It would take a remarkable device (although they do exist) to be capable of running two different operating systems simultaneously, with both thinking that it controlled the machine.
