This is my main.tex:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,twoside,openright,titlepage]{book}


\begin{document}

\frontmatter
\input{titlepage}
\cleardoublepage
\input{abstract}

\end{document}

The abstract is:

\begingroup
\let\clearpage\relax
\let\cleardoublepage\relax
\let\cleardoublepage\relax

\chapter*{Abstract}

\endgroup           

\vfill

This page, the abstract, is numbered. How can I remove the number from this page?

    The quick solution is to use \thispagestyle{empty}. However, you might want all the first page of each chapter be so - then it's another question you should ask (or rather look for its solution as it was surely already asked before)

To remove the page number (as well as header and whole footer), you should use the \thispagestyle{empty}. Indeed, in the book class, new chapter pages are of style plain, that means without header yet with page numbering at the bottom.


MWE

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,twoside,openright,titlepage]{book}
\begin{document}
    \frontmatter
    Title page goes here
    \cleardoublepage
    %Abstract - begin
        \begingroup
        \let\clearpage\relax
        \let\cleardoublepage\relax
        \let\cleardoublepage\relax
        \chapter*{Abstract}
        \thispagestyle{empty}%<=======
        \endgroup           
        \vfill
    %Abstract - end
\end{document}
