What does:

    :; mount | grep ' / '


It is possible that it is mounted with something like nodev.

Does the /home/alvaro/.screen directory exist?

To avoid the issue entirely, you could mount a tmpfs or ramfs at
${HOME}/.screen to keep the fifo local.  As a side benefit you won't
have any stale fifos to clean up after any crashes. :-/

Or specify a different home for screen files, under a local filesystem.
