I'm a bit stuck at a simple question: how can I create a single pdf file with multiple plots and pages? Multiple page is what I need. I could not find a solution to this simple task in the Internet.

I don't think that Matlab can create multi-page pdfs for you, you'll have to do that yourself. pdfsam is free and does just that.
If you want to do it only occasionally, then you can use the Matlab figure window to export to pdf, and the pdfsam GUI to merge them into a single pdf.
If you want to do it in an automated way from the commandline, then you can use Matlab's print command or one of the many much better functions from the FEX (e.g. and then pdfsam's console interface to merge them. You can call the console interface from the Matlab command line either by
As a third option, you could generate and compile a latex file from the Matlab command line, that's probably what I would do, but it depends on what you're comfortable with.
Btw, this is all assuming you're on Windows, if you're on a Mac, then can do the merging, you don't need pdfsam. For Linux, I'm sure, there is something similar.

Look what I just found in the documentation of export_fig:
-append - option indicating that if the file (pdfs only) already
exists, the figure is to be appended as a new page, instead
of being overwritten (default).
So now this offers you the 4th and probably easiest option!

The append_pdfs function can concatenate separate pdf files into a single document in MATLAB.

I had the same question. the best alternative I came up with programmatically is to use postscript, this allows you to use the append option within the print command:
print(fig_handle, '-dpsc', '-append', 'D:\output_dir\')
if you really require a pdf then you can utilise or equivalent to convert

Release 2021b now supports exporting to a multipage pdf using the exportgraphics function
