fputs() just outputs whatever you give to it. It does not add a newline.
In text files or streams, a newline is an explicit character that you
must send to the output if you want line breaks in your results.

A LF character, which usually is a newline, is represented by "\n" in
Octave strings.

So do this:

fputs(fid,sprintf('iteration "%d" is successful\n',i));

That will put a newline after every message you're printing.
