Hello,

I am facing two problems with my paperback version.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/1522072942

1. In the product description all the lines are getting merged in single line. It is not the case with kindle version. Kindle version works perfectly. But KDP paperback is not.
Please have a look at the product description here. You can see all lines are merged into one. https://www.amazon.com/dp/1522072942

2. I uploaded the new cover page image but it is not getting reflected in the product page. I have received email confirmation that my update is done. But still in the product page
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1522072942 it is not reflected properly.

Well, there's part of your problem. You published through the awful KDP Print Beta instead of reliable old CreateSpace, which has been doing good work for seven years or so.

Do a web search for Amazon Author Central, set up an account, claim you book(s), write your description there. Preview it! Save it, and it will replace the present version in a very few hours.

Good luck! -- NJ

Use CreateSpace for paperbacks; use KDP for ebooks.

No need to post your link three times. You chose to use KDP-Print, so you have to live with its many glitches and bugs. If your updates don't appear on your sales page in two weeks, use the Contact Us button at the bottom of the page to tell the KDP boffins all your woes.
