run apt-get update first, and then run apt-get install screen and see how you go.

Your package list/index is out of date. That version of screen has been replaced with a new one, so you won't be able to find the file.

General rule of thumb with Raspbian - always run apt-get update before running apt-get install or apt-get upgrade.

apt-get update will fetch the latest index files if there have been any changes since last time you ran it.
