Looks like a network error but you might also be running afoul of a web blocker on your network. What happens when you paste the install link into the URL line on your browser? You should see a simple summary of the artifacts on the build. If you receive a network error or a web blocker message then this will confirm that the issue is external to Eclipse and the EDT build.
In which version of Eclipse are you trying to install EDT (for example, "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers 3.7.1", "Eclipse Classic 3.6.2")? There is no content.xml and I do not believe there ever was (there's just site.xml, content.jar, artifacts.jar).
For folks that don't already have Eclipse, we recommend the All-in-one package which includes the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers 3.7 and the EDT plugins.
For folks that have Eclipse for Java EE Developers 3.6 or 3.7 (note, the Java EE package of Eclipse is required), you can use "Install New Software" option from the Help menu to add the EDT update site
Nightly builds are intended for contributors and extenders (and other people on the bleeding edge of EDT) more than users. The update site for the nightly builds is

You need the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers. Seems you may be using a different package, since the message says "org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.core" is missing.
Another idea is to get the All in one build from the EDT downloads page, which includes Eclipse 3.7 Java EE and EDT packages in a single zip. There is an All in one build for Windows 64 bit.
