Screen program

apt-get install screen is giving a 404 error for one of the files. Anybody know somewhere else I can download a copy of this utility?

Works for me on Jessie.
Did you forget to do sudo apt-get update before the install?
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated RPiOS Buster w/ Desktop OS.

screen seems a bit flakey with the update. I have to hit ctrl A multiple times to get the option to kill the screen, anyone else notice this behaviour?
