I don't know what version of obiee you are using but I know there is a patch that is making page breaks work again in 188.8.131.52.x
Look at the Oracle support page and search for the following patch:
Any updates for above issue as we are also facing same issue in 184.108.40.206.12.
any workaround will also do as it was working previously in 220.127.116.11.8.
