Debian 10, ChromeOS container: only topmost line of text changes when reverse scrolling in 'more'\'less' mode

Specifically, I'm looking at a manual page for a command.

After I scroll down through the manual, attempting to scroll back up results in only the topmost line of text in the terminal updating. Like, if I tap 'k' multiple times, the topmost line will change with each iteration of 'k', but all other lines of text in the terminal will remain the same. Using 'u', 'b', etc. to scroll up will do the same thing.

This happens consistently whenever I try to navigate a 'more'\'less' interface, including 'help' or 'man' pages.
