Quality is delighting customers
Testing: Basically, testing is a process of exploring the system to find defects present in the software, and not only that, this process has to locate the defects and define what will happen once these defects occur. This process is performed in the testing phase by testing team, and after this phase, they will report to the developer team to debug. Some popular testing tools: Selenium, Katalon Studio, TestComplete,…
Debugging: Once Development team received the report from the testing team, they will start debugging. The purpose of this phase is to locate the bug and rids the software of it. It is a one-off process and is done manually. In this process, a special tool called debugger is used in locating the bugs, most of the programming environments have the debugger. Some popular Debugger tools: WinDbg, OllyDbg, IDA Pro,…
Testing is performed to find defects/ bugs in the software.
Debugging is performed to find, analyze and remove the cause of defects, bugs or failure in the software.

To answer your above question, let me explain you the difference in terms of software qa services provided in industry:
Testing: The purpose of Testing is to find bug(s) and check if the system is working as desired or not. This activity is conducted by the QA Tester to identify the bugs in the system; which can be performed either manually or using automation tool.
After this, the bugs are reported for the failed cases and communicated to the developer team for debugging and fixing. After the valid bugs are fixed, then tester retest that bug to check if the issue is fixed or still exist.
Debugging: The process of identifying root cause of the bugs is known as Debugging. This activity is performed by the developers to fix bugs in the system.
Based on the bugs reported, developer analyzes the root cause of bug; look for loopholes in the code to make the system defect free. After fixing the defect, developer send back the defect to a tester for retesting.
Hope above information helps you!!!
