I am application packaging engineer. My job is a lot different than a developer's. A lot of developers don't understand that we have to take these applications and make them reach the user/machines with any user interaction or interruptions. I have searched Google, Edge, Reddit etc over and over and cannot find the instructions. As important and wide-spread this product is, its amazing that even Eclipse does not provide actual silent install instructions. Doe anyone know how to install/deploy this product silently?

Download a package from here and unpackage it to the location of your choice:

https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/

So, there is no "install" per se

Exactly. Nothing needs to modify the system registry.

In the past i did (for creating a vagrant box) -->

curl -v -kLO 'https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?r=1&file=/technology/epp/downloads/release/'$eclipseMonth'/R/'$eclipseVersion'.tar.gz

This works not anymore, instead of the expected packacke a file ,,download.php'' is downloaded.

any ideas ?

Shall we expand on this? (Yes, it does not help you with "silent install", but it is a peculiar statement ).
First - why do you indirectly expect developers to understand your strange way to package your application ?
Secondly - as a user I would not want anything on my system "installed silently" AKA without my knowledge what is being installed.
And last - Eclipse is IDE so why you need to install it to support your "silent" process to install what ?
Either you are installing for development (IDE) or "ready to run
" application.
PS You do not need to reply to my off the subject post.

This URL helps to see the direct file system contents of the download server:

https://download.eclipse.org/justj/?file=technology/epp/downloads/release/2023-06/R

The direct links on each file name will directly load it from the server without using a mirror, which might be slow and would be bad if everyone did that. The link on the download icon uses a mirror, which I think you are effectively trying to bypass by specifying r=1.

A URL like this should work too.

https://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/downloads/release/2023-06/R/eclipse-committers-2023-06-R-linux-gtk-aarch64.tar.gz

I can't say why what you did before stopped working. That would be something likely only the webmaster can answer...
