You probably need to turn the debug option in the settings. You go to
Settings, Developer options, then enable USB debugging.

In case Developer options is not on, you need to enable it, I recall it
was like touching 7 times the Build Number at Settings, About phone.

It's a long road after that to get Debian running in your device, but
it's a start. Getting root access is a good next step. In some devices,
you can run adb as root. You might try it by running adb root before you
run adb shell (wait some seconds as adb root will restart the adb daemon
process in your device).
