Well, the thing with it is that it's not that obvious. So thanks for
the idea! :-)

The 4.0.3 and 4.1.0 debian packages can't be installed at the same
time as of now. I'll think about how I can implement this. It's not
trivial, but doable.

Grub did something similar for the grub1 to grub2 update. And I can
check if screen sessions are running and do a normal upgrade if not.

The other idea I had was to refuse the upgrade as long as a screen is
running in a way that all packages except screen are upgraded until
the screen session is closed.

                Kind regards, Axel
