Default Pic of cap, is it a Badcap?

Following from another article on here where I used my powersupply and I got some strange readings, I accidently opened up my SMPS:

Is this cap broken?

It is a 0-30V 0-10A PS and it had a flickering currentlimiting LED at 20V and 4.5A. It has never delivered full power at lower voltages, but 7-8A was never a problem.
The cap, as far as my limited knowledge goes, is not damages: it is just a lacquer type top that appears cracked. I plan on opening it up again eventually, but all my high voltage caps are not available right now (behind several kW of solarpanels that need to be mounted first... I do have a 400uF 350V very old cap that might fit).
