There is no difference between them. Both phrases mean One moment, please!/Just one moment!

the latter literally means "one blink of an eye"

My teacher said that "einen Augenblick" means you are literally going to do something right away at this next moment. Whereas "einen moment" is a bit looser - it can even mean a whole minute or two.

They both mean the same. Augenblick literally means blink of an eye. There is a similar word in norwegian : Øyeblikk and they mean the same too. We say et lite øyeblikk her in norway. This means one moment please.
