How are you connecting the Lacie NAS to your network?
Are you connecting it via a small switch or directly into the back of your
wireless router via an ethernet cable?
In this case the LAcie device should get an DHCP address.

If you are connecting it directly to the ethernet port on the USB-C adapter
then take note of this from the device manual:

Most home and office routers are DHCP servers, meaning that your device
will automatically receive an IP address once it is connected to the
network. If a network is not DHCP-managed, the LaCie storage device will
use APIPA (automatic private IP addressing) to assign itself a valid IP
address within the existing network. In some cases, it will assign itself
an IP address following the rule 169.254.xxx.yyy/24.

So it is using bonjour/zeroconf to allocate an address to itself. I am not
that expert on using zeroconf with Ubuntu, sorry.
